How to make a perfect cup of tea
If you have spent a lot of time and money to buy the best red tea kettle you will no doubt be keen to make the very best cup of tea.
Below are some suggestions on how to make the perfect cup of tea.
- Store tea in a sealed jar or similar, tea can spoil by absorbing moisture and kitchen smells.
- Tea needs oxygen to develop the flavor, because of this it is important to always use freshly drawn cold water into the kettle before boiling.
- Your teapot should be clean.
- Warm the pot first by swirling a small amount of boiled water around in it.
- When making black tea, pour on freshly boiled water.
- When making green tea, use the water when just at the boil.
- Calculate one teaspoon of loose leaf tea per person and then add one teaspoon for the pot. But make the tea to the strength you like.
- Add sugar if you wish but it can mask the complex flavors.
- Add milk or lemon or have the tea black.
- Allow the tea 7 minutes to brew in the teapot if loose leaf but only half this for tea bags.
- For the best enjoyment drink from a bone chine cup.
- According to the English put the milk in first.
It is really worth spending time and effort on achieving the perfect cup of tea. For example, the type of tea that is commonly served were you are given a cup of hot water and tea bag to dunk in it just isn’t the same as the tea flavor can’t develop as the water is too cold.
As a side note it is believed that the practice of putting the milk in first, came from England from the 17th century. This is because the delicate porcelain they had available in those to drink tea from in those days, was very sensitive to heat. By putting the milk in first you would effectively reduce the temperature of the tea thus preventing your valuable china from cracking. Of course, this could be a complete myth, but it’s a nice story never the less.
